The other day we had a particularly bad CGM insertion. Elise flinched as I pressed in the plunger, and then started to cry. Something that is unheard of around here.
Upon closer inspection, I found out why... a small dot of red began to bloom. Then seep, And drip.
We removed it ASAP and I gave up on any chance of her wanting another one any time soon. We've been having some problem areas and I've been depending on the CGM to help us pinpoint exactly what is going on.
I came downstairs after nursing Lucas when Elise ran up to me and said, "I'm ready to try again!"
So we did... this time it went just fine. I looked at Elise and told her that I was so proud and amazed by her bravery.
She hugged me and said, "Oh thank you Mama! All you really need is some gum. And a whole bunch of love. Thank you for giving me both."
Swoon... I love that girl.
*we always give her gum to chew during pod changes and CGM insertions. She swears it takes away the pain.
